The spontaneous sound, nicknamed as "Bama Boom", has been recorded from Middle East to East Midlands to Australia - majority on American eastern coast.

Experts are scratching their heads, offering up theories like supersonic aircraft or meteors exploding in the atmosphere.

In 2017, similar booms have been reported in 64 locations, including Michigan, Lapland, St Ives, Swansea and Yorkshire, with the latest one reported from the USA state of Alabama and Idaho last week.

Birmingham National Weather Service stated in a tweet that, "Loud boom heard: we do not see anything indicating large fire/smoke on radar or satellite; nothing on USGS indicating an natural disaster".

The Birmingham National Weather Service originally hypothesized that the sound could have come from a supersonic aircraft or a meteor breaking the sound barrier, possibly from the Leonid meteor shower that peaks on November 17 and 18. But Nasa has since cast doubt on these explanations.

The unusual noise was also picked up by the US Geological Survey, whose data suggests that the boom was not resulted from an quake. It may have been caused by a military flight by a supersonic jet, however, US Air Forces has not confirmed it yet.

But similar sounds have been heard around the world, from Colorado to Yorkshire, with 64 reported this year, the Daily Mail reports - and other "booms" were heard near Denver this month.

According to some reports, this is not the first time the mysterious sound has been heard.

NASA's Cooke, meanwhile, said that meteor scientists at the federal space agency will continue to examine new data to determine the cause of the baffling booms.

Two weeks later, another boom was heard over the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia at the same time a blue meteor passed across the sky.

"It just got bigger and bigger and it was just this big flash across the sky and there were sparks coming off it", Port Lincoln local Lisa Watson was quoted by News Corp. "I just felt the whole earth shake twice", he added.
